I am in love with these Side Split Tops from Ahfif! I have other similar tops like this, but the ones from Ahfif are perfect for the cooler months. The fabric is slightly thicker so it keeps you warm. Also, these ones have a turtleneck, which means the are PERFECT for wearing with turbans!!!
So I was planning on getting this post up while the kids were asleep while I was on vacation, but that didn't happen. Before I left the weather was still warm and even hot some days, then I came back from Florida and it was cold here, apparently I missed the first freeze of the year.
This mosaic print hijab is from A Cup Of Dee It's no longer available (they sell out of prints extremely fast). The do however offer tons of beautiful prints and even though they are based out of Singapore, the shipping rates to the US are extremely low.
I was so excited when I woke up and it was cold enough to finally begin wearing my jackets and boots. The air was cold and crisp, and it felt like the perfect fall day, and then it got hot outside a couple hours later! Oh well, at least it's not as hot as it was a few months ago.
Anyways, this fall look includes some of my favorite fall colors, olive and brown. This olive hijab from The Hijab Souq is going to be one of my go to hijabs this fall, since olive matches most of my clothes.
So I know I have been craving fall weather, and now that its finally arriving I feel like I need to wear all my "summer" clothes before its too late and I have to wait until spring to wear them again. Is anyone else doing this?
This gorgeous maxi cardigan is from Louella by Ibtihaj Muhammad. Louella sells the cutest maxi cardigans, as well as maxi dresses, long sweaters, jumpsuits, and more.
One of my favorite styles is "dressy casual." This outfit is the perfect example of that. I paired a plain white t-shirt and some jeans with a blazer and some heels. It's amazing how much of a difference adding a pair of heels can make, even to a jeans and t-shirt outfit. This type of outfit is definitely one of my go to looks.
I'm so excited for the cooler weather! I know a lot of my outfits don't look like its fall, and that's because it hasn't felt like fall here, until recently. I have started pulling out my jackets and sweaters in preparation for the cooler days to come.
For todays post, I wanted to share with you what came in my second Rocksbox. In case you are unfamiliar with Rocksbox, it is a jewelry subscription box where you can either wear the jewelry on loan or purchase (at a discounted price) the pieces you fall in love with.

I'm thinking of starting a new section on my blog called "Weekend Wear" what do you guys think? My weekends are usually laid back and I typically wear casual clothing. This outfit is the perfect example of what I wear on the weekends.
I have been loving this pleated tunic from Vela recently, its the perfect color since it matches everything. You know those shirts that you wear over and over again? Well, this is definitely on repeat in my closet right now.
Instead of doing an outfit of the day post, I wanted to do something different and share a jewelry post with all of you.

This Houndstooth Maxi Cardigan from Kabayare Fashion is a great transition piece for this time of year. Houndstooth is such a classic print, and easily one of my all time favorites. These maxi cardigans are perfect to wear over jeans, skirts, or dresses- so practically everything, and they can be dressed up or down, which I love.
This Zig Zag Shrug from Striving For Modesty has become one of my essential pieces of clothing. I am someone who loves to layer (as most hijabis probably are). I have lots of clothes that are short sleeve or sleeveless and I am always looking for great cardigans, blazers, and jackets to wear over them.
This Long Sleeve Crop Top Fringe Tunic from Vela has become one of my favorite tops recently. It has a white cotton tank top with fringe connected to it, plus it has the connected white crop top. The crop top is loose fitting so its perfect for these warmer months.

Kaftans are one of my favorite articles of clothing for summertime (not to mention during Ramadan). This kaftan from MyBatua has recently become one of my favorites! It keeps you cool during hot days, and it doesn't cling to you at all.
After a long break I have finally started blogging again! We recently had the worst floods in state history, and it was raining every single day for weeks- with thunderstorms, hail, tornadoes, etc. I'm actually still getting use to seeing the sun out again.

So we have still been having a lot of this foggy weather recently. On this day it was chilly, but not too cold, so I decided to wear my cape. Can I just say how great this cape is? It's perfect for cooler days since its not too big, and you can just throw it over what your wearing.
We don't get many extremely cold days where I live, so I will wear my big jackets any chance it get. On this day we were told to expect snow and everyone was excited, (we haven't had any snow this winter).
I know this post is pretty late, but I have had a few people ask me about this top, so I figured I would put this post up anyways. So, this long gold fringe "necklace" is actually connected to a black shirt.
Right now I am hosting a giveaway for MonAmour Collection. It's a Pin It To Win It Contest on Pinterest. The winner will be announced February 28th, 2015 and they will receive this Gloryfull Hand Chain!
I know many of you have been wearing sweaters for several months now, but not me. It hasn't been cold enough until recently, (one of the downfalls of living somewhere that is hot most of the year). I love sweaters and boots, and pretty much all winter clothes, so I always get excited once it's actually cold enough to wear them out.
Who else has been having extremely foggy days where you live? Some days have been so bad I couldn't take any pictures outside (not to mention hardly being able to see down the road). Well, these pictures were taken one day after the fog was starting to lift (still pretty gloomy outside though).
Blazers have to be one of my all time favorite pieces of clothing. They are a layering necessity. I paired this one with the Demure Pleated Essential Top from Haute Hijab. They seriously have the best layering tops!!!
